Mid Sussex Science Week (MSSW) is a way of inspiring primary school students in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM). We hope to engage all students involved so as to ignite a spark for STEM that they can take with them into secondary school and beyond.
The annual event normally takes place in June. A STEM Ambassador from a local STEM business is partnered with a local primary school to visit and set a theme (normally relating to their area of expertise or business). During the week the STEM ambassador visits the school to support the teachers and students in completing a project to showcase at the end of the week to a panel of judges.
STEM ambassadors often work in exciting places and therefore bring the fun, knowledge and expertise of a particular subject to each different school.
The winning school has the opportunity to visit and showcase their work at the Big Bang event later in the year.
MSSW was founded by local councillor Pete Bradbury with support from local business owner Philip Todd. Philip Todd is Chairman of the organising committee.
